Just watched that. Why didn't the drive go wider on that turn, he had plenty of room it looked like.

I don't know but when you add that to the deductible on the trucking company's (or whoever was responsible for the move, maybe the marina?) insurance policy, it's not going to be a good day. I bet the lift will be in the tens of thousands due to the delicate nature of the boat (it's not a concrete girder or I-beam), the lack of lift points (I don't know anything about boats but I'm assuming they have none), and the fact that it not only has to be lifted but righted first. I'd imagine it will take several hours and will probably require a PE on site to sign off on the lift plan.

I wonder about the use of the bucket loader as an additional puller. Having two tow vehicles with independent steering and drivers really complicates things. As heavy as that boat is, I think a tandem axle tractor should be capable of pulling it without issue. If not, adding ballast to the tractor would seem a better answer than involving a second tow vehicle.

Is it standard practice to use a trailer that narrow (looks like a normal 102" width) to move boats that size? It looked incredibly unstable even before the idiots dumped the trailer axles off the road.

No matter how rich you get, you never want to pay for others' incompetence. And I doubt he'll be paying for it anyway, unless the trucking company or marina has one hell of a liability waiver...

At the beginning when I saw the boat list to the right I expected it to dump off the right side in the curve.

Trailer look too small to me.

Width of the load is not the issue, it's the height of the COG. From the looks of the trailer, the axles were under rated for the load. We are working on moving a yacht that is about 40' wide and 40' tall, weight is only 300 ton, so its relatively light for its general size. Trailer being used under it will be about 80% axle load and traveling at a whopping speed of less than 2 mph.
